Cool interview, thanks!

He's getting a degree now (!) and hoping to get the band back together soon.

they've never broken up, ever. just taken breaks after shannon and are still looking for the newest singer. travis was amazing, but his throat got so bad in canada in 08 that he had to stop for a few months and he and the band decided it was a good time to part ways. i agree....they spent years advertising they "didn't want another shannon" and then spent the 2 years with Travis telling him to sing more like shannon...

and don't listen to goodhonk. For My Friends is an amazing album, unless you think that all Blind Melon should have Shannon Hoon and they should never work or grow as a band again. If you're able to listen to it as it's own thing, it's great, and Travis is an amazing vocalist.

Does anyone know what kind of switcher he is using on that board? It looks durable and compact and maybe a little DIY.

That was the first/prototype Custom Audio Electronics (Bob Bradshaw) Pedalboard Switching System. Rogers and Bob worked that system up a few years ago. According to Bob, Rogers has since sold it.

Rogers 3 Monkeys head was a one off we did for him based on a JTM45-100 if memory serves...

I don't mind bands "growing" after the death of a member. But when it's your lead singer, your main songwriter. I think you should just rename the band. To me it is not, and never will be Blind Melon again. Although they are great But, again, to me it's not Blind Melon without Shannon.

Same with Alice in Chains, to me it's not AIC without Layne.

Shannon Hoon was NOT the "main songwriter". he wrote the lyrics, which are only a part of the songs.

to aic: even considering the fact that Jerry Cantrell wrote all the lyrics and music and did all the arranging?

touche 8) what i meant, and should have said, was listen for yourselves and form your own opinion. and give it an honest chance. if you're only going to like Shannon, then you're not going to like it. Give it a chance to stand on it's own and you might, they're great songs.
